A Beatles-themed concert performed by a family of Dwight students from our schools in New York, London, Seoul, Shanghai, and Dubai was a night to remember!
A truly internationally minded educator who has lived on several continents, Marie Nieto brought the World Scholar’s Cup (WSC) to Dwight — and was named Coach of the Year at the Global Round in Beijing in the same year!
Against a spectacular modern skyline, the historic Shanghai Concert Hall stands, echoing with performances by generations of world-famous musicians who have graced the stage since its grand opening in 1930. This beautiful 1,122-seat venue was the setting for a sold-out concert entitled "Music of Spring" performed by nearly 130 students from Dwight campuses around the world.
"My favorite part of the trip is hard to narrow down to a single moment; instead, it was a series of moments! I loved the energy and collectiveness of the trip as a whole!" wrote tenth grader Alden Wilson, reflecting on the weeklong choral "extravaganza" at Dwight School London.
International fellowship was a guiding force for a group of four Dwight New York students and one Dwight Global student as they traveled to Shanghai last month for the 7th Shanghai International Youth Science & Technology Expo.
Among the many presenters, Dwight's team was a standout, winning the Most Popular Exhibition and making headlines in China Daily's Expo coverage! Congrats Lions!
It's hard to believe that our fifth graders have been traveling to Dwight School London for two decades!
